It’s easy to say that Milwaukee Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich has picked up right where his MVP season left off. But he might actually be even better.authentic nfl jerseys china free shipping
Yelich tied a major league record in the first inning Sunday, drilling a 1-0 fastball from St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha over the wall in right field for his fourth homer of the season. As it turned out, he was just getting started.nike nfl wholesale
The reigning National League MVP became the sixth player in MLB history to start a season with homers in four consecutive games. The other five are Willie Mays (1971), Mark McGwire (1998), Nelson Cruz (2011), Chris Davis (2013) and Trevor Story (2016).
For all the success he’s had lately, Yelich remains at a loss for words whenever he’s asked how he managed to get so locked in at the plate for so long.
“I don’t know, honestly,” Yelich said with a shrug. “I’m just trying to stay within an approach.”
The solo blast by Yelich gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but St. Louis rallied for four runs and still led 4-3 entering the ninth. With fireballing closer Jordan Hicks on the mound, pinch hitter Ben Gamel punched a double into the left-field corner, and Lorenzo Cain reached on an infield single on a ball that deflected off Hicks’ glove.nfl nike jersey wholesale
That brought Yelich to the plate with runners on the corners and none out. The percentages say you don’t put the tying run in scoring position in a spot like that, but considering the way Yelich is going, an intentional walk is something Brewers manager Craig Counsell says you have to consider.
“That’s [a question] for [the Cardinals],”nfl jerseys cheap china free shipping Counsell said. “You’ve certainly got to talk about it.”
The two-run double gave the Brewers a 5-4 victory, as Milwaukee took three of four from division-rival St. Louis in the season-opening series.
“It was definitely a cool series,” Yelich said. “It was a great series for us. They’re a great team. They play us really well. These games were tight. You’ve got to execute to win them.”cheap nfl jerseys china free shipping
Yelich won his first MVP award — the fifth in Brewers history — last season, with an epic second half of the season that propelled Milwaukee to the NL Central title. He’s continued that to begin the 2019 campaign. Through four games, Yelich is hitting .500 with four home runs and eight RBIs. He’s reached base in 12 of his 18 plate appearances.cheap nfl jerseys from china free shipping
“He’s on another planet, man,” Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff marveled Saturday. “He’s so special. Just watching him, he’s so balanced. He’s not fooled that much. He’s on time with pretty much everything. It’s pretty cool to watch.”cheap nfl jerseys free shipping china
